In today's society some have argued that the legal profession's codes of conduct are a hodgepodge of rules without any clear ethical basis. In this text, Boon and Levin systematically address this compelling issue. Some of the major questions raised are as follows: Is self-regulation crucial to the survival of the legal profession? What fundamental philosophical principles govern ideas of professional conduct? Are the present codes regulating solicitors and barristers consistent with these principles? And, looking forward, are they appropriate when the legal profession faces radical social, political and economic change? While this text focuses on the dynamics of the justice system in England and Wales, the overall issue of ethics and conduct in regards to law holds worldwide interest. Students, teachers and practitioners will find this the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary guide to and analysis of professional conduct and ethics.

About the Author:

Andrew Boon is Head of the School of Law at the University of Westminster. Jenny Levin was until recently Professor of Law at University of Wales,Swansea, where she was a founder of the law school.

Review:

The publication of this book should put to rest any future controversy about whether legal ethics is a deserving topic of academic research and whether it should be taught in law faculties. The answer that Boon and Levin give is a resounding and uncompromising YES. In a convincing and powerful way, they have provided the necessary scholarly compliment and complement to the Lord Chancellors Advisory Committee on Legal Education and Conducts insistence that legal ethics should be at the heart of all stages of legal education. The Ethics and conduct of Lawyers in England and Wales is a book that should take pride of place on the bookshelves of any self-respecting lawyer or academic. ..quite simply an exemplary and superior piece of legal scholarship that merits attention by anyone who is interested in the workings of the legal profession and the development of law which of course, should mean everyone. Allan C. Hutchinson Journal of Law and Society September 2002 Throughout this book, the authors raise many questions for their Canadian counterparts. Adam M Dodek University of Toronto Law Journal September 2002 the most scholarly and detailed of its kind. Michael Beloff QC Times Higher Education Supplement September 2002 A significant book.meets a current need in those law schools which have already accepted that the ethics and conduct of lawyers in England and Wales quite properly has a place in Legal Education. Richard Tur Law Quarterly Review September 2002
